|Koch||Pink||To Life and To Truth|
Robert Koch was a German physician known as the founder of modern bacteriology. In addition, he played a vital role in identifying the specific causative agents of tuberculosis, cholera, and anthrax. Koch is most known for his research that led to the creation of Koch’s postulates – four generalized principles linking specific microorganisms to specific diseases that remain today the “gold standard” in medical microbiology. Due to Koch’s many brilliant contributions he was the recipient of the 1905 Nobel Prize for Physiology.
